The Bowdoin Chamber Orchestra performed to a full room in Studzinski Recital Hall on Nov. 9, in the penultimate performance of students belonging to the senior class.

Directed by Beckwith Artist-in-Residence George Lopez, the program began with a rendition of Edward Elgar’s Serenade for Strings, Opus 20. The orchestra then performed Felix Mendelssohn’s expressive ‘Hebrides’ Overture, Opus 26. After intermission, the concert concluded with Antonin Dvorak’s cheerful Symphony Number 8 in G Major.
